DivX Player for Mac beta
DivX Labs announced its DivX Player for Mac. The Player supports playback of .divx, .mov, .avi, .mp4, and more. Features include a "desktop dimmer" for darkening the desktop behind the video window, a "fade out window when playing" function, full player controls wen in full-screen mode, and more. To run the DivX Player on an Intel-Mac, users must first download and install DivX Player before DivX 6 for Intel-Macs "because installing the DivX Player installs a PowerPC-only version of our DivX Decoder," according to the developer. DivX Player for Mac is a free, beta release.
